what jay leno does in talking about earlier in the show. barack obama will have a wide opening on the debate to say, mitt, if you can give us magic ponies, please tell us how it's going to happen. >> congressman rand, you live in northern virginia, you represent that area. what are people saying about romney? do they get this complication here that he's sort of hiding behind, i'm not telling what you i'm going to do? >> i hope they understand it. i hope they watch shows like yours, chris, but the problem is they're being besieged with these 15 to 30-second ads, and, of course, they also avoid specifics. that's what we're into. we're into all these promises, these vague generalities. we only have ourselves to blame if we let them get away with it. i'm hoping in the debates they will be nailed down, that they have to get specific. because, you know, neither party has really come to grips with what you'd have to do to really reduce the deficit, but you can't reduce revenue by another $5 trillion, increase spending by another $2 trillion, and then not touch the big tax expenditures.
